All Star Break needed for Phillies

July 8th, 2010 by Leo | Filed under Baseball, General, Phillies.

Major League Baseball brings Taco Bell All-Star Sunday to Southern California on July 11th at Angel Stadium. The doubleheader includes the XM All-Star Futures Game and the Taco Bell All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game. The XM All-Star Futures Game, which features some of the game’s best young prospects from the U.S. and around the world.  The second game features former All Star Legends and Celebrities in a fun filled softball game.

This will precede the 2010-81st All Star game at Angel Stadium on Tuesday, July 13.  The only Phillie to be named a starter was Chase Utley, unfortunately Utley’s latest injury will keep him out of the lineup. Only 2 other Phillies made the team this year, Roy Halladay for pitching and Ryan Howard as a reserve first baseman.  My prediction is the National League will win this year.

Hopefully this break will give the Phillies a much needed break to help heal the lineup and regroup for the second half of the season.  Currently the Phillies are in third place in the NL East and are 6 games back from the leading Atlanta Braves.
